Where to credit points: I would recommend crediting these flights to one of the strong Star Alliance loyalty programs—Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, United Airlines MileagePlus, Avianca LifeMiles or ANA Mileage Club. As Velocity’s partnership with Air New Zealand ends before these flights are taken, you cannot earn Velocity points. Read our full guide on where to credit your points.
Booking link: These fares are on sale until the end of 17 August. You can book directly through Air New Zealand but I would suggest clicking through the Cashrewards link first as you will earn 1% cashback—it’s free to join.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. Fares may disappear quickly, so we suggest booking as soon as you are confident in your travel dates.
